Yesterday’s highs hit the 40s and lower 50s-it felt great! Today’s high temps will be just as comfortable. We start with temps in the upper 30s and lower 40s this daybreak. Highs today reach the 40s and lower 50s with partly cloudy skies. Tonight’s lows reach the upper 30s and lower 40s again with a few showers possible.
Temperatures warm to the upper 50s and lower 60s on Thursday!
With the warmth, comes a chance for rain and thunderstorms. A warm front lifts into Indiana Thursday morning, giving us isolated storms and showers. The severe storms are possible once the cold front moves closer to the state. The timing is late afternoon through the evening according to Forecast 8 Futurecast.
All of Indiana has a slight risk for severe storms Thursday. The biggest threat will be from damaging wind. There is a chance for an isolated tornado and also flooding. The snow melt equals 1″ to 2″ of water. The ground is frozen so the runoff will lead to lowland flooding and river flooding. The rainfall potential is around half an inch of rain Thursday. Stay tuned as this forecast becomes more clear on timing and severity of the storms.
Temperatures get colder and below the average high of 41º by the weekend. We hit the lower 40s Friday into Saturday. There is a light wintry mix on Saturday. Sunday’s highs will be in the mid 30s. The 20s return next week.
